Timeline of Road Closures and Suggested Detours
Parts of I-80, I-29 Temporarily Closing
Parts of Interstates 80 and 29 in Council Bluffs will close temporarily beginning Sunday night, November 5, diverting some traffic onto Interstate 480 in Omaha. These closures are part of the Iowa Department of Transportation’s reconstruction project for 18 miles of Interstates 80, 480 and 29 in the Bluffs.
Southbound I-29 between Ninth Avenue and Nebraska Avenue will be closed from 10:30 p.m. Sunday to 5:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10. The closing is for demolition of part of the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge.
Northbound I-29 then will close from 10:30 p.m. Nov. 12 through 5:30 a.m. Nov. 17.
Drivers on I-29 can take either I-480 into Omaha or surface roads in Council Bluffs during those periods. Traffic on I-480 in Omaha likely will be heavier than normal during that time.
Also in Council Bluffs, eastbound and westbound I-80 will be closed at the I-80/I-29 interchange, or exit 1, from 10 p.m. Sunday to 1 a.m. Monday and nightly from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
